The True Light verses Counterfeit light
2nd Corinthians 11:14 warns us that Satan himself appears as a good guy, i.e., as a divine messenger of truth. We hear much talk from the heathen world about "the light," such as in the Poltergeist movies, and from psychics like Char Margolis. However, the "light" which the Bible warns of is a counterfeit of the true Light. What is the Light? The Word of God is the Light, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" (Psalm 119:105). The Gospel is the Light, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2nd Corinthians 4:4).
Jesus is the Light, "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12). John 9:5 states, "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." Christians shine with the Light of Jesus, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid" (Matthew 5:14). John 1:4 sums it all up with the statement... "In him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men." The Light is the Truth, and Jesus is "the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

Transforming verses Submitting
Satan tries to imitate the Light, and is a master counterfeiter. Satan's spirit works in the unsaved (Ephesians 2:2) and some of them even become Satan's ministers, "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ." Oh! but they're NOT of Christ, they are demonic, sold out to the Devil. These are the followers of Lucifer, the prince of darkness. Carefully notice the phrase "transforming themselves." The Greek word for "transforming" is metaschematizo, which means, "to change self." Hence, there are many ministers today who have never been changed by the saving power of the Gospel; rather, they have only changed themselves to look like genuine men of God. This is very interesting, and a powerful Biblical truth to teach others.
OST religious people today have only changed themselves, in their own self-righteousness. They have never submitted to the righteousness of God found only in Christ Jesus. There can be NO salvation apart from the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which absolutely forbids any self-righteousness whatsoever! Ye must be born-again!!! Many ministers and priests today are IMPOSTERS! Roman and Orthodox Catholic priests are ALL liars and imposters, because they are going about to establish their OWN righteousness, instead of the righteousness which is of God... "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." Here we see the opposite response of changing ourselves--SUBMITTING OURSELVES.
Do you see the difference? The foolish person tries to change their OWN SELF to please God, going about to establish their OWN righteousness (Isaiah 64:6). However, the wise person submits in obedience to the Gospel (2nd Thessalonians 1:8)--by coming to Jesus Christ as a sinner under the condemnation of God's Law (Romans 3:10,19), deserving of Hellfire (2nd Thessalonians 1:8), trusting upon the finished work of redemption ( i.e., the shed blood of Jesus Christ) to take away their sins (1st Peter 1:18-19). "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13). Have you submitted to the righteousness of God, which is Christ Jesus?

The Gospel According to Apostle Barack, by Barbara A. Thompson.
Yes, Barack had worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, especially those who elected him in 2008. His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term, so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or “heaven here on earth.” Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor. Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth.” For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.
